We booked this house after renting in Belfast several times. First, a few days prior to arriving the owner emailed us letting us know when to arrive (after 5pm) and where to park. When we arrived, we found there to be barely any parking. The driveway was mostly blocked off. Then, we went to the door and a rather large doberman came running to the door barking and showing its teeth. The owner came out and asked, "if she could help us." I told her I was there to check in and she told me that she had nothing on her calendar. She had just emailed me days prior telling me when to arrive and where to park. She had been living in the rental space and the place was a mess. She asked us to go out to dinner while she picked up. We rented a house so we could cook. When we came back after dinner there was still food of hers in the refrigerator, used toiletries in the bathroom including a used toothbrush, laundry in the washer, and the house smelled like dog. The website said that we were renting the entire house and listed as a vacation rental. What we found out upon arrival is that we were actually sharing the house with the owner and her large doberman. She was staying in another part of the house. To boot, we were only allowed to use a very small part of the driveway. She told us we could unpack and put our clothes in the dresser. When we tried to so, we were unable because all of the drawers were already full of clothes.
We didn't even spend a night there. The smell of dog was overwhelming and when we went outside, the doberman barked at us. It was advertised that we were renting the entire house, not sharing a house with someone else and a large dog that barked and showed its teeth. We got a hotel for the night then returned home the next day. We didn't have a vacation in Belfast this year unfortunately.
We had a nice trip to the Charming House near Ocean. One tv in master bead room but nice place to unwind and escape.
